Since George Clooney split with Stacy Keibler over the summer, it seems like every woman he is spotted with is immediately branded as a possible new girlfriend.
Rumors flew last month that he was hooking up with Katie Holmes after she attended the premiere of his film Gravity and the two were photographed greeting each other on the red carpet.
Earlier this week he was photographed in London having dinner with a “mystery brunette” who tabloids quickly branded his new lady. But his “date” was Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s attorney and fame international human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin.
And don’t forget constant rumors that he’s rekindled his romance with Croatian model Monika Jakisic.
The 52-year-old perma-bachelor NEVER comments on his personal life, but in this case he’s stepped up to set the record straight. He released a statement to People magazine stating “three different stories in three weeks. I should be an athlete. But, no of course, it’s all made up”
And his longtime rep Stan Rosenfield took things a step further to state:
“George wants this Monika crap to stop. He wants Katie to get a break, and he wants Amal to be able to prosecute cases without being hassled because she had one dinner with George and four others … I even asked George if these [rumors] were true and he said he never comments on his private life, but in the interest of stopping the harassment of all three of these women, he felt he should.”
